Mason's Moxie; Steelers QB Rudolph embracing challenge

PITTSBURGH (AP) Mason Rudolph could have gone the hat and clipboard route, the typical gear of choice for most NFL backup quarterbacks. The inner pragmatist in him would have none of it.

So Rudolph spent the first six quarters of the 2019 season standing on the Pittsburgh Steelers sideline with his helmet on while watching Ben Roethlisberger go to work. And Rudolph didn't just have it sitting atop his head either. Most of the time he would tug it all the way down.

He's aware it looked a little weird. Well, weird for everyone else. Just not for the self-professed football "nerd" who prefers functionality over fashion.
